Community Interest and Engagement with Science and Technology in Victoria Data

The Department of State Development, Business and Innovation has been tracking community attitudes and engagement with science and technology since its benchmarking survey in 2007, Community Interest and Engagement with Science and Technology in Victoria Research Report (prepared by Quantum Market Research). Another survey, Community Interest and Engagement with Science and Technology in Victoria was conducted in 2011 (prepared by Sweeney Research).

What do Victorians think about science? Do they seek out science information? Do they get enough science in the media? Do they think technology is advancing too quickly? Are they more likely to engage with sport a movie or read about science?

SPSS data sets are available for the 2007 and 2011 survey results can be downloaded at the right hand box.

Each data set is the result of 800 interviews with Victorians over the age of 18, in inner and outer metropolitan Melbourne, and regional and rural Victoria.

An interactive data tool is also available and enables comparison of the 2007 and 2011 data and allows the data to be filtered for a variety of demographic characteristics. The results of survey questions can also be plotted against each other.
